Off-Site Exhibition: Drinkers of Quintessences at Casino Luxembourg

ARTISTS: Fortner Anderson, Steve Bates, Marie-Claire Blais, Olivia Boudreau, Claude Closky, Marie Cool Fabio Balducci, Alexandre David, Adriana Disman, Kitty Kraus, Stéphane La Rue, Kelly Mark, János Sugár.

Drinkers of Quintessences was first shown at the Darling Foundry in 2018. The exhibition brings together twelve artists from Canada and Europe around the concept of emptiness, understood as both a critical position and a quest for the infinite. Presenting works of art that are minimal, seemingly empty of content, ephemeral and furtive, this exhibition takes a stance against the society of the spectacle. It puts forward a direct encounter with the works, and invite viewers to let themselves be carried away by an experience beyond the gaze.
